Born with the same exceedingly good looks as his twin brother, Dack, Orman "Dirk" Rambo's promising career was cut short tragically, in a fiery car crash at age 25. A loss taking his brother, Dack Rambo, a lifetime to heal from it's pain. (See "Dack Quotes").
Co-starring with brother, Dack, on "The New Loretta Young Show", lead to guest appearances for Dirk in TV series' such as "The Virginian" and "Dragnet".
Like his brother Dack's demise nearly 28 years later, Dirk Rambo left the entertainment industry and world, far too soon ... before all of his talents could be fully utilized ... before all of his contributions to TV, Film and Life could be completely given.

They graced the earth far too briefly, but how fortunate we are that they were here.
